    Picked up a mooring buoy, and a lovely friendly guy came and took our money. 13.9m loa, £26. We stayed overnight very early in the season, and it was idyllic and incredibly peaceful, especially as the sun set. It became very shallow but luckily we had one of the buoys right near to the entrance.

    Stunning anchorage, shelter from pretty much all directions except North. If staying overnight, worth putting some fenders out at deck height. As others have referenced, if busy important to lay the correct amount of chain. Inevitably boats sometimes drag during the night leading to the Shell Channel Pilot phrase ‘Newtown Creek Pyjama Party’. Off season or mid-week the delights of this location are arguably the best in the Solent. Hamstead anchorage just outside is perfect alternative if it’s a bit busy inside during the day.

    Beautiful spot!! Only reason for 4 stars is how busy it is (for obvious reasons) and the price of the guest bouys, we picked one up and it is £21 a night (we are 29ft) but great spot easy access to beach and short walk to pub at end of river
